A Landmark Ruling: Celebrating 10 Years of Freedom from Gene Patenting. Moderated by Elizabeth Chao, MD, FACMG

  • Join us for a legendary roundtable as we bring together genetic counselors, patients, and attorneys to share their reflections on the impact of this transformative case.

    Hear from panelists who played a significant role in advocating for gene freedom as they discuss:

    • The heart-breaking challenges patients faced before the 2013 SCOTUS decision invalidating the patents on the BRCA genes
    • The life-saving impact that access to testing by labs across the country has had for breast and ovarian cancer patients and previvors
    • The significant drop in cost for BRCA 1&2 testing
    • New insights on variants and clinical impact enabled by research access to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes
